|View from The Boboli Gardens by Polly Jones|
The top painting was done with a micron pen and watercolor while the bottom was just plain watercolor. I'm still trying to get the hang of the layering process of watercolor. It really makes a difference to let areas dry before adding details. It creates a more translucent affect with crisp edges to contrast with the more "flowey" areas. I think I just made up a word.

|Watercolor landscapes by Polly Jones|
I'll be sharing a few pieces from the trip over the next few days. Above are watercolors I did in Oxford. The first was the view across the street from the house we stayed in. The second was done in University Parks from a bench that J.R. Tolkein frequented. Watercolor is not my favorite way to paint but it's growing on me.
